Barça to offer Messi new deal
Both El Mundo Deportivo and La Gazzetta dello Sport have suggested the Catalan club are to offer the 22-year-old €9.5m per year in an attempt to secure his long-term future.
Barcelona are also keen to raise the buyout figure in Messi's deal, which currently stands at €150m, to €300m.
The mooted new deal would see Messi overtake recent signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic as the highest-paid player at Camp Nou.
The Argentina international has spent his entire career at Barcelona, having come through the club's youth system.
He made his debut in 2004 at the age of 17, and has gone on to score 54 goals in 109 league appearances.
Messi also played a starring role in Barça's successful 2008/09 UEFA Champions League campaign.
